It happens on occasion. Usually when the server is down for maintenance.

I suspect that this database (the LiD forum) is on a server being shared with some very large, high-traffic database. This happened in the past too and I ended up calling my host. They told me how to solve the problem, and I did it back then. Basically, I need to backup LiD, delete it, make a new forum, load the data. This will give our database a new server and hopefully not one shared with a hog-like database.

I'm not experiencing these problems, but keep letting me know if they are occurring frequently. If things don't improve I'll do the backup/delete/restore thing.

An error like that happens also when the database server itself goes down for maintanence. The server has to stop the mysql process and usually apache (which runs the loading of the pages) while it does its updates, reboot, etc. So that may be all it was, esp if you tried accessing the server late at night server time.

The forum will be down a short time this coming Saturday. I plan to backup/delete/reinstall the database and hopefully get on a better server. The current one seems overloaded.
